In California, because marijuana penalties for possession are more severe after 28.5 grams (a little over an ounce), it is useful to know exactly how many marijuana cigarettes equal an ounce. An ounce (28.35 grams) typically makes about 60 marijuana cigarettes, which are popularly referred to as joints. However, this can vary depending on the potency of the joint. It would not be extremely unusual for an ounce to make somewhere over 100 cigarettes or as little as 30. This is not to confuse a joint with a blunt. A marijuana cigar, or blunt, typically holds much more marijuana (often multiple grams per blunt), so less than 30 blunts will collectively contain 1 ounce of marijuana.
